Ham Member Lookups: 10890

   

An A.R.R.L. Member, NX3L, has also been working Military HF, VHF and Air bands since 1989, compliments of the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, with that consideration, if QSO's seem rather disciplined or structured, consider his operating enviorment for the past 25 years.

Likewise, ragchews, if any, (again unknown in Mil. Comm. Ops.), may be short, however, a very friendly QSO's to be sure!

Professionally, NX3L is employed by the Boeing Co. as a Logistics / Spares Engineer, where we support the U.S. Army's CH-47 Chinook helicopter, as well as those CH-47 Military operators located in the U.K., Canada, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Greece, Egypt, the U.A.E., Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Austraila.

Sorry, I never get involved with "green stamps" or S.A.S.E.'s, regardless, I will mail a QSL card to most of the stations I work, and prefer the same in return, however, if you would rather respond via electronic (eQSL), or the ARRL Incoming QSO Bureau, that would certainly be fine.
